I have added the notice now:

  http://svn.apache.org/viewvc/couchdb/trunk/NOTICE?r1=801058&r2=801057

The license is an MIT license:

  http://www.opensource.org/licenses/mit-license.php

Which is a Category A license:

  http://www.apache.org/legal/3party.html

Which means we don't have to clear it explicitly.

Also, we're a TLP now! Hehe.

Damien should have updated NOTICE, but it's not a big deal.

The problem is fixed now.
